Protesters invade Heritage Foundation
The Heritage Foundation, one of the most influential think tanks in the U.S., was swarmed Tuesday by left-wing activists.
Protesters from People’s Action packed into The Heritage Foundation’s main lobby to shout grievances about President Trump’s budget, his plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border and other issues. They screamed “shut it down,” while refusing to offer a representative to speak with The Daily Signal, the conservative nonprofit’s media platform.
“Why is funding possibly going to border wall when our communities have no clean water? @realDonaldTrump @Heritage #WaterIsLife #RiseUp2017,” People’s Action tweeted with video of the protest.
“We want people to know that Donald Trump is not the one who wrote this budget. It’s these people [at Heritage]! Donald Trump is their puppet,” said one protester.
The Heritage Foundation blasted the group once it was cleared from the area.
“We will not be bullied or silenced by staged protesters backed by progressive special interest groups connected to George Soros,” the nonprofit tweeted.
